I have contacted this company for a personal loan over the phone mentioned above just before the new year and I received an invoice letter on January 7, 2019 that approved my loan file which was $ 30,0000 US. In addition to that , this company had informed me that further instructions and documents will be sent to me to finalize the transaction. I have received an invoice letter and a promissory note over my email telling me about the loan proceedings and that I have to sign and return to the fax number follow :###-###-####.I t was explained to me that the interest rate of the loan is 3.5 % and my monthly payment will be $403.00 every month . therefore , they have charged me a package fee 0f $513.00 which I paid with a money order from western union , then they have send me another document mentioning to pay $ 1,500.00 US for closing fees before my loan amount could be transferred to my account .Two money orders for this amount have been sent to this address : DAP *** *** 3*** Crestwood pkwy suite 400 Duluth, GA 30096. when contacted about the money transfer of $ 30, 000.00 US to my account , they told me that IRS hold and stop the transaction for taxes purpose and this not in they hand any more.
Now , they told me that I have to send $ 2,500.00 US for taxes to them so that the loan of $30,000. could be released to my account . I have raised hell and argued with them over the phone concerning that scam and the person that I spoke with hanged up the phone on me. Now , I want my money to be reimbursed to me in the amount of $2,000.00 that were issued to them through priority mail and I had copies of all the transactions made to this company and these people identified as Mark ***el Mgr. , Thomas W***, head of funding dept. and Charles Williams from communication dept. This is briefly my story and I want this company to be investigated along with these people mentioned above and I want to carry this experience to the social media and news reporters so that others will be alerted not to fall into the hands of those scammers.
